So, i wrecked the Subaru on Christmas day and have just been kind of avoiding the subject of it at all, but really, i need to get things movin'.  I need another car, i finally got my engine sponsor and even though they aren't supplying me with engines, they are giving me an amazing deal, and i have the support i need to get things rockin'.  I lost some hope their for a bit, having wrecked the car, no sponsors and was just feelin' stuck.  Really though, things are moving along great, i got engine sponsor, all the parts support i could need, i just need to get some cash flowin' so i can buy a new RS for this swap.

With this break in time, it gave me a chance to really re-evaluate why i'm doing this, why i think it's important and what can really be done with a vehicle like this?  I want to show the world that it's well within reach for a cheap price and by bringing older cars back to the road and hopefully slowing the need to keep producing new vehicles in such high numbers.  This car can be the start of an automotive revolution.  The public can see how buying a car that is 5-10 years old can be put to like-new condition with a new engine that is going to get them 50-60 miles per gallon consistently,  all the time, making good power, driving comfortably on the road, no under-powered diesel vehicles like those of not too many years ago.  I'm excited to bring a badass car to the road that is affordable, fast, fun to drive, produces minimal emissions running on a fuel source that is RENEWABLE!!!

More and more promising developments. The aftermarket is growing for these engines now too. I'll get another car and we'll be on our way with this project.

I also wanted to make mention of another project i'm also starting on soon, which is just a family project, finishing the Jeep build, my '89 XJ, it was a 4 wheel drive project i started about 5 or 6 years ago, and it's been sitting since i started with the suspension and didn't finish it, so it was not drive-able due to no steering, and short control arms that wouldn't allow the springs to relax and caused gnarly drive-line angles.
